I've had my Windows 10 x64 laptop for about 7 years now. It's definitely slowed down within the last year. I don't know if I'm rushing into looking for another laptop too soon or not. So I want to know of other's experiences on this. I'm not as knowledgeable on hardware as I'd like to be, so thinking of searching for a new computer stresses me out. Plus, I'm kinda interested in using Linux but worried I'll regret that decision in case there's a bigger learning curve than I think there will be.
Also, I have a lot of PC games that I don't think will work on Linux...
Has someone ever tried using a new OS and realized it wasn't working for you?
In terms of improving my current laptop, is there anything I can do to speed things up? I looked up some advice on Computer Hope, but I don't want to try anything too risky.
